I'm having a similar problem here, i built the above machine with a friend and successfully installed iAtkos 10.5.4, updated to 10.5.5.
Originally it was intended to just be a messing around machine to supplement my macbook. Well, it was so much faster and reliable enough that it ended up becoming my regular machine, despite my limited knowledge of how we actually got osx86 on there in the first place.
well, the other day my power went out, which had happened before and had been no big deal. my machine had always rebooted without any problems. but not this time.
i'm stuck at the gray apple screeen and when i boot in verbose mode, i get over and over:
diskOs2: I/0 error.
and then mixed in some of these other suspicious lines:
michael-kellys-mac-pro sandbox compilerd: find computer pthread_cond_timedwait e=60 (operation timed out)
michael-kellys-mac-pro sandbox compilerd: bootstrap_look_up_per_user failure (kr=49, duration=19.670606) unknown error code
family specific matching fails
BTCoexistence feature not supported!
a whole bunch of other stuff, and just now:
ACPI CPU Throttle loaded
ACPICPUThrottle: Adding CPUO
ACPICPUThrottle: Failed with code -536870212
that repeats four times before this:
ACPICPUThrottle: No valid CPUs returned by ACPI! It's Possible your BIOS does not think your system should be throttled and therefore did not return any available power states, or maybe your CPU only supports one other power state than maximum
there's more, but i'm not sure how to capture it. like i said, i'm pretty novice at the under the hood stuff, because of all your hard work i've been able to enjoy my hackintosh for over 7 months without any issues, and of course i make regular back ups knowing that issues can always pop up, but i have some important data on the machine that is not backed up anywhere from the past week or so. my friend that helped me in the first place is AWOL right now, i would really like to know if there's any way i can get into my machine to back up data on it before installing ideneb 10.5.7 that i downloaded last night.
i know you're not my personal hacking army, i was trying to learn to do this stuff on my own from my buddy. but this just happened to blow up in my face when he's unreachable AND i need to get my machine back online. Any help would be HIGHLY appreciated.
